All:

I live in the USA & drive an '85 Ninety V8 Station Wagon. One of the tabs on the binnacle is broken, so I bougt a used binnacle online. The sticker on the back says it came from a 50th anniversary vehicle. There's another hand written sticker with a name & a date in 1998.

Turns out I'm going to swap the dash for a Puma one when I restore the vehicle, so I don't need the binnacle. I can easily sell it here, but I have several questions;

1) is it a real 50th Anniversary binnacle? ( I can't see an option to add photos. If you have a 50th binnacle, post a pic & I'll tell you if it's the same.

2) if so, what's it worth?

I'm actually a Brit so I have family in the UK. I can send it over if anyone wants to buy it.

Thanks,

Paul.

if it has lamps for the heater and fans; but still has the old (pre TD5) warning lamp panel then its likely to be 50th.

Also if where the lamp fits these are white; again likely to be 50th.

There should also be a hole for the alarm LED.

The TD5 ones are similar apart from they have the new warning light panel.

From a 50th point of view I'm sure people on here would be interested; value wise i've seen similar ones on eBay (not 50th) sell for 30 - 100 depending on condition. (that's without any gauges or warning light panel.)

If it was a complete binnacle with Speedo etc.; then even 250+ would be possible; as they the gauges etc. and whole assembly was 50th only.

I has the led light in the middle, with a wire & connector.

It's been repaired but the tabs are good.

How many posts do I need before I can post photos?

The site doesn't have its own photo functionality. You have to provide a link to the photo saved on a public server. (some don't show anymore)

However if you contact James (site admin) he can host the photos on his server and send you the link to make them display

I use Photobucket but it doesn't allow links any more. Must make classifieds tricky? If anyone wants photos, PM me your email address. I'd like to sell this thing since I have no use for it.
